I went away for the week of Canada Day to visit friends. It was relaxing and I had a great time, and it was a nice break from life at home.
I considered going to WSOP to play the Main Event, but I felt like the $10k buy-in would serve me better in my bankroll for HU SnGs at this point in time. I could have sold some action, but I make more money staying at home to play online in that case. Hopefully I’m there next year!
I also went to the PokerStars VIP party in Vancouver. I was pleasantly surprised by how fun it was. I’ll be posting a short trip report on PokerListings soon in case you missed it and want to see what it was like.
I haven’t played much poker since coming back from my short vacation yet this month. The hours I have played have mostly been late afternoon and evening, which have been a lot slower than usual. I imagine the summer months have something to do with it.
I’m doing what I can to enable myself to play longer days. I have to start earlier than I’ve been starting to get quality hours in. My biggest problem is always getting going in the morning; usually when I start playing, I am happy to keep playing. So ensuring that I have food to eat first thing in the morning and other such things will help get me going faster. That’s the plan at least.
